Celebrate Pride! LGBTQ Heritage in Charles Village

Normal's Books & Records 425 East 31st Street, Baltimore, MD, United States

Celebrate Pride Month with us on a LGBTQ Heritage walking tour of Charles Village! You may know this neighborhood for its colorful “painted ladies,” but it was also home to many activists and institutions at the heart of the city’s LGBTQ community in the 1970s and 1980s. Our wonderful guides will take us on a walk past local landmarks from the original home of the Gay Community Center of Baltimore, now the GLCCB, to the St. Paul Street church that supported the growth of the Metropolitan Community Church, Baltimore’s oldest LGBT religious organization, and the radical feminist writers and publishers that gave a voice to lesbian authors who might not otherwise have been read. We hope you’ll join us to celebrate Pride and the incredible community that called Charles Village its home.

Historic Ridgely’s Delight

Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum 216 Emory Street, Baltimore, MD, United States

For a tiny neighborhood squeezed between the University of Maryland and Camden Yards, Ridgely’s Delight contains an oversized history. George Washington rode here and Babe Ruth was born here! Join us to walk the preserved, picturesque streets of one of the earliest neighborhoods in Baltimore while we look back at the stories of both its famous visitors and the ordinary Baltimoreans who worked and raised their families here.

Federal Hill Beyond the Views: A Monumental City Tour

Federal Hill Park (Southwest Corner) 301 Warren Avenue, Baltimore, MD, United States

Baltimoreans celebrated atop Federal Hill when we ratified the U.S. Constitution. We used it to defend the city from the British in the War of 1812 and to make sure we stayed in the Union in the Civil War. We have even tunnelled under it to quarry minerals. Join us on a tour of Federal Hill and the neighborhood around it to learn about this waterfront community’s rich history, including stops at one of the last wooden houses in the city, the oldest house in Federal Hill, and the wonderful alley houses along Churchill Street.

$10 – $15

The Lillie Carroll Jackson Civil Rights Museum: A Behind-the-Scenes Tour

Lillie Carroll Jackson Museum 1320 Eutaw Place, Baltimore, MD, United States

From 1935 until her retirement in 1970, Lillie Carroll Jackson was president of the Baltimore chapter of the NAACP and for much of this time her home on Eutaw Place was a hub of Civil Rights organizing for Jackson and her daughter, Juanita Jackson Mitchell. On July 27, join Baltimore Heritage Executive Director Johns Hopkins for a short walk around Lillie Carroll Jackson’s neighborhood, which was also the home of many other Civil Rights luminaries including Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Mitchell. Then we will go inside the museum to tour where Jackson, called the  “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement,” lived and worked for the cause.
